Here's a story from westerncollegehockeyblog.com about some of the players expected to be a part of the new team.
Assistant Coach Dave Noel-Bernier is a busy guy these days. He's on the road constantly, scouting for new players for the first edition of the USHL Lumberjacks. Here's a story from the Muskegon Chronicle's Ron Rop, giving readers a look into the life of an assistant coach building a brand new team.
And Ron Rop has another story about ongoing renovations/remodeling work taking place at Muskegon's L.C. Walker Arena.
The team is also looking for billet families, and are holding a pair of tryout camps next week at L.C. Walker Arena as well.
